Dedicated hosting is a hosting configuration in which a server is devoted to a single organisation or for a single purpose, such as a website. This is in contrast to shared hosting, in which a server acts as a host to multiple clients. A dedicated hosting service is sometimes referred to as a dedicated server and can be set up in-house or externally as a service from within a data center. Let’s have a look at some of the benefits.
Line speed, billed on the 95th percentile, refers to the speed in which data flows from the server or device, measured every 5 minutes for the month, and dropping the top 5% of measurements that are highest, and basing the usage for the month on the next-highest measurement. This is similar to a median measurement, which can be thought of as a 50th percentile measurement (with 50% of measurements above, and 50% of measurements below), whereas this sets the cutoff at 95th percentile, with 5% of measurements above the value, and 95% of measurements below the value. This is also known as Burstable billing. Line speed is measured in bits per second (or kilobits per second, megabits per second or gigabits per second).
Thanks for the info. [QUOTE=UberMensch;20364865]For colocation, I wouldn't go with RapidSwitch unless you have serious money to burn. While they're a very good and very professional host, there's a few hidden costs which they don't exactly tell you about when you sign up. Have a look at killercreation.co.uk. The guy who runs that - Justin - is possibly the nicest person you could ever meet. They also do standard dedicated servers which are a little more expensive than RapidSwitch, but the attitude of the company outweighs that imo. Where RapidSwitch are extremely professional, KillerCreation are much more down to earth and friendly.[/QUOTE] Ok, thanks, Do you know how Killer Creation's normal game servers are though. And Im guessing if I just ask them they can get a Gmod server since its not on their list of games?

The two environments have plenty of overlapping qualities, but most importantly Dedicated Server render greater security, customization and excellent availability. With granular control, you are free to customize hardware components like disk space or RAM and installation of unique operating systems. More substantial computing power (CPUs) and disk space allow Dedicated servers enhanced performance for high amounts of traffic. When uptime and performance are critical to your business Dedicated Servers are second to none for hosting.
A dedicated server, or computing server, is a machine with its own dedicated physical resources. Unlike a virtual server, which uses a portion of a machine's physical resources for its virtualization technology, a dedicated server gives you access to all of the machine's available RAM, storage, and computing power. Applied to cloud computing, dedicated server solutions can also be referred to as 'bare-metal', highlighting the physical availability of the machine's resources in contrast to standard cloud solutions based on virtual instances.

A common pitfall for new communities looking to host their own Squad servers are the use of Game Server Providers (GSPs), services that specifically offer Squad servers (Usually priced by the slot). While these companies provide automated setup or control panels with basic functions, they all suffer from the same universal issues, and at this point are considered a defacto ripoff. In a nutshell, they don't use the proper hardware for Squad, don't responsibly balance server loads, and deflect their poor performance onto several other factors before they'll address the root issues, simply because it's not profitable to do so. Instead, most existing community admins suggest that players looking to host their own Squad servers use dedicated hosting, where a computer is rented out itself for the "dedicated" purpose of hosting Squad. There's a few extra hoops to jump through to get a licensed dedicated server set up, but the end result is a quality performing server that isn't a complete ripoff.

Bandwidth consumption over the last several years has shifted from a per megabit usage model to a per gigabyte usage model. Bandwidth was traditionally measured in line speed access that included the ability to purchase needed megabits at a given monthly cost. As the shared hosting model developed, the trend towards gigabyte or total bytes transferred, replaced the megabit line speed model so dedicated server providers started offering per gigabyte.
